You’re crashing hard off the copious amounts of Halloween candy and sugary boozy punch you’ve indulged in the past month of October and then it hits you; Holiday Season is upon us. While buying the perfect gifts for friends, families, co-workers, your least favorite sibling may be daunting, we’ve decided to put together a bunch of kickass guides to help you with your shopping this year.

Even better, our gift guides all feature products from independent or small businesses. So not only will your gift-giving abilities be the talk of the town, you’ll actually be making an effect on the people in those towns by supporting small businesses, who work directly to create the products you are gifting.

So take a look at our comprehensive guide to your holiday shopping below, support small businesses, find the best gifts for your favorite people, and maybe even treat yourself.

For the woman who won’t stay silent, the rebel girl. She’s always reading and learning ways to make a difference, attending rallies, and educating others. If you have a friend or family member that’s girl power through and through, then these gifts are for you.

As we near the holiday season, I ask that you consider shopping small and supporting local & small businesses.  The more you support local, the more the local supports the community as a whole. People with passions, following their dreams; that's what fuels small businesses. Happy Holidays and happy shopping!
